I just wanted to share with you my solution to ND filters. I often had trouble with flaring and finding the correct sizes for my manual lenses. Using this system, I only need one filter.img_1655624088093.jpg.3ee4c3c8412624f50f1d849ace73c44c.jpg

I made this filter out of a sunglasses lens. I cut it out with scissors. Originally it was just a weird experiment but somehow it works perfectly with no flaring or quality loss 

No part of the lens or shutter is obstructed. Maybe certain lenses aren't compatible? All the lenses I have work normally.

The filter just sit there. It can fall out, but when the lens is mounted, the filter stays in place extremely well for some reason.

 

On the older Fujifilm cameras like xpro 1, you only have a maximum of 1/4000. I have a f1.2 lens that requires a minimum of 1/20,000 in bright sunlight.

One of the reasons why I would only buy digital cameras with ISO 64 and 1/8000s as a minimum. The fiddling with the filters annoys unnecessarily!

That's true but high shutter speeds can be detrimental to certain types of photography. It's a stylistic choice, but I think the 'frozen' look that high shutter speeds create is a very digital looking thing and I like having the flexibility to choose a lower SS. It's definitely annoying to deal with filters though 🤣
